Flight_One is the first in a series of four limited CDR releases by Lost Winter planned for 2017.
Flight One (LW010) features:
-a new song burned at home on mini CDR
-a hand-stamped cardboard sleeve
-a song title business card
-An inlay card featuring a beautiful photocollage by Crow Versus Crow which, as well as being a unique work of art in its own right, also forms part of a larger photocollage, the other quarters of which will be made up of art from subsequent Flight releases (Flight Two will be released in June/July 2017).
Flight One is a stripped back instrumental piano ballad influenced by Hauschka's 'Craco' and John Martyn's 'One World' LP.
The concept for the Flight series was influenced by stories I'd recently read about the mysterious fate of certain Sun Ra singles from the mid 1950s. These songs appear to have been released, however, no physical copies have as yet been found. I wanted to emulate this mystery somehow, so I decided to forgo digital distribution in favour of a physical release. However, I've made one concession to the digital age by uploading a 60 second sample of Flight One at:
All Flight releases will be limited to 12 copies.
